When any band has string band in its name, you expect old-timey country. Well, you are just not going to get that from The Demolition String Band. There’s twang and alt country, but the DSB rocks hard as well. The band is led by front woman Elena Skye and guitarist Boo Reiners, with Kenny Soule on drums and Michael Santoro on bass. Whatever they are playing, your ears will definitely be pleased.
The DSB will play tonight at at the cozy and inviting Treehouse at 2A in the East Village, one of my favorite places to see a band. The DSB is also bringing copies of their new CD, 21: The Best Of Demolition String Band, which is only available from the band.
The Demolition String Band, Treehouse at 2A, 25 Avenue A at 2nd Street (F Train to Delancey Street or 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 10pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly encouraged)
